Few products cut monthly expenses as effectively as energy efficient buildings. By adding one, you’ll cut down on heating, cooling and lighting expenses. In some cases you could earn tax breaks or rebates.
Retrofitting an existing structure for better energy efficiency is one option. Building a new metal, wood or brick-and-mortar structure is another choice. Both can be expensive and time-consuming.
WeatherPort™ offers a better money saving solution. Our buildings set the standard for energy efficiency in fabric membrane structures and can be safely and securely erected in days or weeks, not months or years.
With a shorter construction schedule you’ll save time and money in the short term. Here’s how WeatherPort can save you money in the long term.
Roofs: Our PVC fabric roofs offer high solar reflectance, high thermal emittance, and their translucency allows in natural light. Those properties alone can lead to less energy use when heating, cooling or lighting a fabric building. Unlike metal roof systems, our roofs don’t corrode, and no corrosion means no leaks or drafts from rust holes.
Mild environments: Even without HVAC and ventilation systems, fabric buildings maintain interior temperatures that usually are 15°F cooler than exterior temperatures in the summer and 15°F warmer than exterior temperatures in the winter.
Insulation: When you add proprietary EnerLayer™ and SuperLayer™ insulation, you can save even more money while saving energy. As with traditional metal, wood or brick-and-mortar buildings, you can add any R-value insulation you desire to your WeatherPort.
Lighting: WeathrPort designers can create a plan to accommodate energy efficient lighting systems, including occupancy sensors to ensure that you’re not illuminating an empty room. We can also add skylights to let in more natural light and cut down on daytime electricity use.
Incredible options: Adding an energy efficient 16 kW heater, Alaska ECU™ or HVAC system from a wide range of Alaska Structures® product options is another way to keep more of your hard-earned cash where it belongs — with you!
From indoor sports facilities to garages, or camps systems for outfitters to workshops, most if not all of these energy saving options and benefits are available in each of our pre-designed building plans.
